He worked as a bank officer in the National Australia Bank and served in the Australian Army for 22 years after being called up for National Service in April 1966. On retiring from the Army in 1988, Jensen continued to be active in community affairs through representation on Parents and Citizens Associations in schools located at Hawker, Wanniassa and Erindale; serving on the Tuggeranong Community Council; and through membership of the Tuggeranong Apex Club,[2] and the Board of the YMCA of Canberra.
